    * Pamela *'s Note:

    Oh, the memories of this recipe! This is a favourite Mennonite Tradition for a summer meal. This is my mom's favourite recipe for Roll Kuchen. I remember fondly the time my parent's spent making this and how they doubled and tripled the recipe for family gatherings. To non-Mennonites the idea of having these with watermelon strikes them as very strange--Watermelon and doughnuts??!!?? But for me and my family it is a food that we enjoy and look forward to having! Cook time is per batch of 4-6 roll kuchen.

      I am 71 years old, and as far back as I can remember, we have used this recipe with watermelon. We didn't eat watermelon without it! It was always salted, never used with sugar or jam. I guess this was our family tradition. This is a wonderful recipe! Thanks for sharing!! I tried this again since I wrote this review the first time. Made a new discovery! We had a few left over which does not happen very often. I froze them. Today we Bar B Que'd and I decided to try some of the frozen ones. I thawed them to room temperature and then brushed them with Bar B Que sauce! Wow! I put them on the grill away from the fire and they took on the smoke taste along with the sauce. Talk about bread with Bar B Que!! This is fantastic!!! Again, thanks for posting this!

      This is so much like the Fattigman (Poor Man's Cookies) I grew up on. My mother made these every Christmas and stored them in a Charley Chip's Can. I would do my best to eat them all before my 4 other sisters got to them. Fattigman's used sugar and Cardamom and sprinkled with Powdered Sugar after they are fried. They looked just like your Roll Kuchen. I am going to try your recipe to see how close they taste to my recipe.

      I've also used this recipe for years. Sometimes I substitute a 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup heavy cream for the milk, but only if I already have it in the house! I would never dream of dipping my rollkuchen in sugar or jam, we salt it lightly while it's still hot and ALWAYS make a double batch or more! Yum!
